Poison Frog Nail Art - Digit-al Dozen Animal Week

Hello all :)

Second day of The Digit-al Dozen taking on "animals".  Yesterday I went for pastel zebras and today...it's one of my favorite little animals...FROGS. Yep, I love frogs. I might end up making frogs for the rest of the week. Fair warning :P

Here's my inspiration: the Ranitomeya uakarii

Source: http://www.dendrobates.org/uakarii.html
 From left to right: Zoya Raven, Born Pretty Store #20, Dermelect Head Turner, SpaRitual Ebb and Flow, SpaRitual Delight
 Above shows a shot before any top coat. I FINALLY remembered that I have matte top coat and this would be the perfect time to use it! The rest of the photos show the spotted nails with Essie matte top coat. I decided to leave the gradient nails alone, as the sponge gradient texture resembled the actual frog skin a lot!
 For my spotted nails I created a color by mixing the 2 Sparituals together. The gradients are The Dermelect, Born Pretty and Sparitual Delight.
I love these challenges that are so broad it leaves so much for the individual to interpret. I think these turned out pretty good! Only thing I'd change up if I could would be to make the black spots larger.

Stay tuned for more frogs, I mean animals from Digit-al Dozen week :P

  16. This is genius! I think I would have known what it was even if you hadn't said, and it's STILL abstract and not too literal. Really fun mani!
